Present Simple

Hi CS students! 
Click on the picture below and practise present simple. 

Use the Simple Present to express the idea that an action is repeated or usual. The action can be a habit, a hobby, a daily event, a scheduled event or something that often happens. It can also be something a person often forgets or usually does not do.

It's about time

 Ugh...teaching time is one of the most difficult things for me.  I mean, if you think about it there are A LOT of skills for our students to learn!  
This is a good resource to teach time.
After the clock is put together, just practice, Practice, PRACTICE!
Thanks a lot to the crazy teacher!

Be kind!

2nd graders learnt this nice poem!

Please and thank you
are magic words
we need to say
very often, every day.

Please and thank you
are useful words
to help you be polite
and make people feel alright.

Please and thank you
are the best words
to say people
with a big bright smile!

Let your children know how happy it makes you when they are being kind and responsible. 
Let's listen to them!

Note for families: you will see this poem in the children's scrapbook.

In every life we have some trouble, when you worry you make it double!


It's fine to be
happy or sad.
It's fine to be
brave or scared.
It's fine to have
short or long hair.
It's fine to play
or just watch.

It's fine to be alone
or want company.
It's fine to be thin
or fat.
It's fine to wear jeans
or a skirt.

It's fine to dance
or sit down.
It's just fine
to be
what you
want to be!

An amazing ending

Hi 1st graders!
After watching the Gingerbread story,  you  decided that the bird didn't eat the gingerbread man and we thought about an ending.
Let's see if this ending likes you...

Let's think about different endings and

Reduce, reuse, recycle

It's time to learn the three R's of the environment: reduce, reuse, recycle. Talk and practice at home: don't buy things you don't need or items that come in wasteful packaging or that cannot be recycled. 
Reuse and recycle whatever you can, as this song says!

Classroom names for 2nd grade

This school year brings black holes and horses to 2nd grade

2ndA group are black holes, but what are they?
Have you ever had to vacuum your bedroom? When you do, watch closely because you will see the dirt and crumbs start to move towards the vacuum cleaner.  A black hole is similar to a vacuum cleaner, cleaning up debris left behind in outer space.
However, it is not suction power that makes things fall into a black hole.  Suction would not be strong enough.  Instead, a black hole uses the power of gravity to pull things towards it.

                             2ndB group is working on horses. 
We are learning the actions that horses do and also new vocabulary about them.
Besides that, we have discovered fun facts about them:
. They can sleep both lying down and standing up.
. Their lifespan is around 25 years.
. They have around 205 bones in their skeleton.

Here you have this funny song from "kids songs" by Patty Shukla
